Yay!  It's working!  I recompiled lirc with the --driver=devinput option
and started lircd with the command line 'lircd --driver=dev/input
--device=/dev/input/event0' then 'irxevent &'.

I've remapped a few of the buttons in /home/mythtv/.lircrc so they make
more sense to me and my GF.

Thanks for the hints. :)
